Icebreacker, 2013
performance-video for projection HD, video loop, 9’ 50, Camera : Ricardo Savard

The performance video “Icebreaker” was created in 2013 during an art residency with “Les Productions Recto-Verso” in Quebec City. In a dimmed space, against the backdrop of an impenetrable black, it shows a woman in a boat rowing on an imaginary sea in the form of transparent plastic tarpaulins. She moves the large panels without moving from the spot. The still headlights are reflected in the foils and reinforce the Sisyphos motif.

“My animation-performance-video projects currently have great importance in my artistic explorations because they enable me to constantly push back the boundary between installation and performance. Since the beginning of my career I have strived to combine the temporal ideas found in performance with the spatial ideas of installation.” [>>]
